Summary/Abstract: Researchers are not familiar with an undeniable historical fact, that, from the very beginning of the creation of national leagues and nation-states in the Balkans, continuously, by those same political subjects, a crime against Bosnian-Herzegovinian society and state was being committed. Bosnian neighbours’ hegemonic, national programs, based on ideological matrix of nation – state, represented a basic driving force to political elites, political parties, governments, armies and states to commit, from time to time, the crime of genocide against Bosnian-Herzegovinian society and state. This is a special type of criminal homicide, unacceptable to human humanum, the murder of a global social group as such, the murder of its essential, pluralistic substantiality, which goes beyond the crime of genocide as a crime that destroys individuals. This type of crime is called sociocide, which in this case is termed bosniacide. Genocide in Srebrenica, although it can be seen as a unique occurrence of genocide, in its essential and phenomenological core it is not, but, on the contrary, it represents a paradigm of bosniacide, as a concrete form of sociocide.
